Company description

Microsoft was founded 1975 by William H. Gates III and Paul G. Allen in Albuquerque. Their office was located Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 1983 Microsoft launched the first version of their most successful product called 'Windows', currently the most used operating system line on the market.

Old Windows version such as Windows 3.11 are generally called 'Operating Systems' but this isn't true, for example Windows 3.11 used MS-DOS (another fine Microsoft product) to run, so it was more like an application running in a DOS environment. Microsoft's first real operating system was Windows 95; it didn't require a copy of MS-DOS or any other kind of operating system to run.

Nowadays the most used operating system is Microsoft® Windows® XP and most likely in the near future Windows® Vista® will take over this position.

Next to the succesful Windows operating system Microsoft also develops games (Monster Truck Madness, Age of Empires, etc.), applications (Office, Outlook, etc.) and consoles (Xbox, Xbox 360). The games mostly have "Microsoft Game Studios" or "Microsoft Games" as developer, this is just a part of the huge Microsoft company.
